trillion in economic activity. this after getting into another war of words with bob corker >> the president has already arrives at the capital for the senate republican lunch he's attending, take a look at the video of the arrival of the president. he walks inside alongside mitch mcconnell. that's called the ohio clock position, just off the senate floor, a normal walk in, but an unusual incident happened a few moments ago. somebody throws something in the general direction of the president, and screams something along the lines of trump is treason or something like that, that protester has been detained and removed from the capital complex. the secret service will want to get a little more information on that moment. this is all in the context of a day in which the 3rez has been involved in a war of words with bob corker
1:03 pm
corker earlier today said the president has been dividing the nation >> our stock market just hit another record high, it's the highest its ever been in history by far, we've created about $5.4 trillion only in stock market value. $5.4 trillion. and we're very happy about it. >> sorry, that was obviously the president talking about the stock market today, something the president likes to do on days like today when there's a big move in the market corker did talk about the president, here's that >> many people, i was one of those that hoped he would rise to the occasion. and aspire to lead our nation, instead of dividing it, it's obviously his political model and governing model is to divide
1:04 pm
he has not risen to the occasion. >> of the presidency it 168. the president firing back in a series of 2w50e9s throughout the morning. five tweets over the course of three hours this morning, isn't it sad that lightweight senator bob corker who couldn't get re-elected in tennessee will fight tax cuts plus. the president there raising the prospect that corker would be against the tax cut bill when it ultimately hits the senate floor. not clear that's the case, i talked to white house officials here who say, they believe that ultimately despite this feud, between corker and the president, corker could end up voting for tax cuts, it's something he's campaigned on and is in his interest as a republican, guys over to you. >> a few days ago, we all celebrated dow 23,000, now we're nearly halfway to dow 24,000 up more than 200 points.
1:05 pm
as we get bigger, these big numbers get a little easier, it's still kind of exciting. >> it is i wish it was a broader market rather than what we've seeing, look at what's going on here the dow is diverging from everything else on the planet. that's a 70 basis point divergence, that's a lot for the dow versus the s&p 500 because companies have been raising guidance and the markets are loving it right now. particularly 3m, which has twice normal volume here put these two numbers together, these two companies, they're 165 points in the dow. two companies, united tech also raised their guidance. we have a rally on two stocks, breadth is what i don't like here new highs, 200, that's fair, not expanding. let's just say the reason things are holding up well is the guidance we have here. caterpillar raised 25% that's eye popping
1:06 pm
you don't see that very often. the rest are more typical. they all raised about 1%, that's good nor a little move up, but in the cases of 3m, the move was much greater here. why does this keep happening the reflation trade, that's what these companies are involved in. they get their money outside the united states, 3m makes 60% of its revenues caterpill caterpillar, about 93% beware of chasing stocks on earnings remember ibm it's been floating down for the last couple days, guys, back to you. >> let's talk about caterpillar and 3m, which are responsible for today's moves in the dow, morgue ing brennen has been digging deeper into what's driving those stocks >> morgan?
1:07 pm
beats and raises that's what's the driving force today caterpillar getting the most attention after a huge earning earnings beat. 3m is having its best trading day in eight years, up more than 7% right now even united technologies which is falling on weaker than expected margins, that's the second time that's company's done that this year here is what is driving the sector. industrial production has picked up, commodity prices have picked up global growth picked up sales have begun growing, and we're seeing this across different businesses for these companies, factoring smarter manufacturing investments, new products, companies like cat and 3m are beginning to reap the rewards, more than a dozen industrials are hitting all time highs today, including cat 3m.
1:08 pm
also, rockwell collins and honey well, the exceptions, lockheed martin, even though the defense contractor also raised guidance and general electric, which is after dismal results last week, increasingly appearing to be the outlier in that sector the stock hitting a fresh multiyear low today. the dow up 19% >> not so long ago that cat was a dog. >> absolutely. >> don't forget that when you look at ge today i'm not saying i'm not predicting anything, but these forces can turning around. and a turn in the economy. >> absolutely, and the industrials are cyclical for a reason, right? >> yep, morgan, thanks >> another cyclical company, general motors reporting strong earnings >> much better than expected earnings from general motors, it beat the street by 20%, the focus is the fact that it earned 1:32 a share the focus is the future when it
1:09 pm
comes to technology, ride share platforms, what does gm see there, this is their cruise automation, one of the test vehicles out in san francisco. on the conference call today, the company says it's making progress when it comes to self-driving cars. ceo mary barra says they're keeping their options open in terms of what happens next >> we very much believe we want to maintain the relationship with the customer, so we're exploring many options, and we could partner with someone, partner with many, or work on our own. >> as you take a look at shares of general motors, mary barra also mentioned they're evalua evaluating acquisition opportunities. compare the optimism with general motors there's plenty of optimism there for shares of seau, but during
1:10 pm
the company's conference call was asked point blank about all of the optimism for the automakers when it comes to self-driving cars, he said it succinctly, don't believe the fluff, it's going to take a long time and a lot of investment, before the tech companies know how this will play out that's something to keep in mind as the auto stocks pay off when it comes to self-driving cars >> thanks very much. we have breaking news out of washington, with regard to tax reform >> house republicans have set a date for the release of their tax bill, it will be november 1st, according to a source on political, researches had said they would not release their tax plan until a budget is passed. the house is scheduled to vote on that budget on thursday they're assuming this is going to sail right through without any opposition from the
1:11 pm
conservative wing of the republican party earlier this morning, paul ryan said he was grateful for the president's leadership on this issue. even as president trump arrives here on capitol hill for a lunch with republican senators that is expected to be very contentious, a date for that tax bill, november 1st, back to you. >> another news alert, julia borstyn standing by for that >> mike hopkins is stepping down, he's becoming the head of sony pictures entertainment. you have hulu ceo going over to sony television. randy fleer had been on the hulu board of directors he's been president and ceo of fox networks group since 2013.
1:12 pm
they're making their own shows such as the mindy project. >> julia, thank you very much, even as the market roars to record levels, black rock's chairman warns investors not to get used to this year's returns. >> black hawk investor institute cake out with a 10-year forecast of 4% that was with a pooled portfolio, that's how low it is. i think it's going to be closer to 6%. it's not going to be what we saw 8 or 10% ago >> is larry fink right ron. does larry's forecast sound right to you, or too low
1:13 pm
>> well, if you're just in the u.s. and you're thinking a balanced portfolio which in my world, that's 60/40, i think that could be so, i think it's more because of the bonds than the stocks i just saw leon just in the hallway here, and he stole some of my thunder where bonds are the bubble, and i've been saying that with you for a while. bonds are the problem, not stocks, and global growth -- we're bullish on the world, our major thing for years and years is that we don't hear about caterpillar takings share from deer they're both adding to sales because of the global growth, as long as the world keeps growing, these companies including boeing and apple have more clients and customers who are bullish on that a rising interest rate, especially in some kind of pool
1:14 pm
bond account, we've seen the best of those days opinion. >> is ron right? address the overall issue, whether you think a 4% return is a reasonable expectation over the next half decade, and is ron right, and has he nailed the point here, which is the sandbag is bonds not stocks? >> no, i guess he's right about bonds, but i think he may be -- the equity story, we have to hold things in context you look back at the last 10 years, which included the great recession. stocks have delivered a 7 1/2% in the s&p 500 what's been the anchor is fixed income has helped you we had a higher interest rate it's very hard to get to 10 or 12% with 40% of your portfolio has a 2.5% return.
1:15 pm
the total return could be less than the yield if interest rates go up. >> of course let's assume you have the underlying bond for the full ten years. on the equity side, you have two things that are going to drive the future, which is it a current starting point valuations around the growth underlying going do support it now, at the valuations we're at, by every measure we're at the top 20% of valuations, it's hard for growth to keep up. there's nothing wrong with the average investor anticipating a 4% if we do better, great, they should look at the portfolios and equities, i completely agree the growth comes from global investing, you can do that with
1:16 pm
the s&p 500, most of the companies have operations offshore that you should be assessing your own risk and making sure you can with stand set back as long the way >> ron, you get -- >> that's unlikely to be the case for the next ten years. >> if you remember, tyler, we talked about thinking that alibabba was amazon on steroids, they make a deal with marriott, because in the next 10 years, the biggest travelers in the world will be the chinese. american companies will do well, the world's growing. the middle class is growing, it's a bullish world and you have to pick your sectors, you can't just be benign and do indexes, you have to be astute, we think that stocks still have a way to go. >> thanks very much, gentlemen president trump and bob

1:19 pm
headlines breaking moments ago. a tax bill will be revealed november 1st
1:20 pm
president trump and corker are doing a power lunch with senators the latest feud between trump and corker breaking out on twitter again this morning opinion is this going to crush any reform >> he needs every vote he can get on tax reform, bob corker is not running for re-election. when you're not running for re-election as a member of congress, your calculus can change dramatically. is it possible he pisses off corker so much, he loses this vote i think to mccain not voting for health care reform i wonder if trump being mean to mccain is part of health care reform >> it's possible i doubt it i seriously doubt it, corker doesn't like trump, trump doesn't like corker. i'm tempted to say, what's the phrase it's sound and fury, but much
1:21 pm
ado about nothing? >> signifying nothing. that was shakespeare i hope i get that right. i don't think it's going to matter to the vote, i doubt it very much, they're letting off steam, i don't know why it continues, i don't get it, i don't know >> remember john mccain was asked the same thing, though >> basically, do you hate the president enough that you would do something you would normally do just to spite him i think his answer to that reporter was, that's a dumb question you think he goes with his zb op head and not his anti-trump fight? >> i think the gop is right. >> john mccain split, right? >> he was against the health care, which surprised a lot of people he did voight for the senate budget resolution. at the end of the die -- >> the really important question for me is bob corker going to take a knee when they serve the advertisers today?
1:22 pm
>>. >> one of the clips asked him if he was going to the trump today. corker said, it's my lunch >> is that right >> have you seen this rally in the industrials today? >> yes, a large portion of this is because of donald trump, what do you think is driving this rally? is it earnings the numbers are good >> profits -- i think that's the biggest case you go through cycles. we're going through a cycle now that makes the trump tax cuts very doable. i think that's great, however. i would have a caution here, there's some issues, i'm hearing stuff from the house leadership, i don't like, i'm hearing, they may not use a 3% growth baseline, which is worth several trillion, they will use a joint tax committee baseline, which means no dynamic scoring will cost them a fortune. >> they can't have that.
1:23 pm
they're going to have the jct, they can't do that, that takes out the dynamic scoring. it throws a hand grenade to the room and runs off. >> it's one of the things. kevin brady mentioned it last week, i don't know how insistent or what, but as a process issue, you're exactly right, it blows a whole in the entire story. and we really don't yet know about the cbo. are they going to be beholden to the cbo scoring, which is going to blow another hole or not? the only way they can get this done, i first have to admit is a 3% growth path, which is worth 2 1/2 to $3 trillion in revenue. that's the mother of all paid fors without that, they cannot do, and they really need to collar phi that. >> they can't do it and stick to the 1.5 trillion in the budget resolution >> yes, someone was calculating
1:24 pm
if they go with cbo, the corporate tax may be 28% or higher, that's not acceptable. >> let's talk state and local taxes, i want to understand clearly whether you expect the bill that comes out on november 1st to exclude the ability of individuals to write off, not just their state and local income tax, but their local property tax as well that would inflame a lot of people. >> for sure. >> they'll go crazy. >> and the realtors will go crazy. >> property tax, i'm in a high property tax state, we've already -- >> the 5.3 trillion in stock market returns the president was talking about, that will be lost in the capitol -- >> i don't like any of this. >> in the house -- >> i don't like any this, all i want to do is business taxes and growing the economy at 3%.
1:25 pm
this is not really a tax reform bill like in 1986 if they go down that path they will fend off the property taxes, can i raise one point? >> sure. this story in the journal mike pence interviews a potential fed chairman, that elevates the story. pence is trump's closest adviser, and pence is seeing warsh, jay powell. i guess he didn't see yellin, of course, the president did. i'm just saying, that his name seemed to be lagging, i would put back back into the first tier it's going to come out of mr. trump's head 12k3w4r thank you, larry >> larry kudlow. >> shares of whirlpool are

1:28 pm
today's power rundown focuses on retail. there are three big topics to
1:29 pm
hit with courtney reagan, who's live at the ceo summit, a bunch of big names from fashion and retail are there a big interview, you caught up with the chairman of saks and hudson's bay >> yeah, that's right, a lot of talk at this conference is about department stores and the future of them. a lot of the folks that are here, are involved in them in some way, maybe the brands sell on the department store stores or websites, we caught up with the chairman, he was a last minute edition here after the news today after the sale of the lord & taylor flag ship for $850 million. take a listen. >> drives in tremendous amount of cash, and allows us to pay down $1.6 billion in debt, and leave us with approximately $385 million in cash. this sets us up to be really strong financially going-forward as we execute what's really a difficult retail environment
1:30 pm
>> he wouldn't say if it makes him more nimble and able to take the company private, there have been reports that that's what he's interested in a lot of talk here today about the future of department stores. >> next topic, could this be the year that online shopping during the holidays passes in store sales? >>. >> yes, this one is really interesting. a new survey out today from deloitte more than half for the first time say they'll spend more money online this holiday season than they will in stores, i think the breakdown was 51% to 42%. last year it was evenly split. higher income earners say they'll spend more that's interesting you and i talk about this a lot somewhere between 85 to 90% of all items are still bought at a physical store pete nordstrom spoke earlier to the crowd. his number is a little higher than most retailers.
1:31 pm
26% of what nordstrom sells online they may one day get to 50%. that is more in line than what that survey shows. >> tough day for investors, down 10%. they announced they're pulling out of sears a price fight causing the breakup. who's breaking up with kwhoem? >> this is an interesting one. whirlpool said in may they informed sears they were no longer going to be a vendor. we're note going to sell you our maytag, kitchen aid gen-aire appliances sears said if they want to charge higher prices, we need to be able to charge low prices to stay competitive if you're in the the market for whirlpool, you're not going to be able to get it at sears much longer
1:32 pm
this is much more checkmark in that worrisome column for the retailer >> courtney, thank you very much enjoy the conference coming up much more on this record breaking rally at this hour we'll ask if any democrats will get on board with tax reform is the republican plan going to cause a 1 pngt $5 trillion problem for the economy, we'll be right back. with advanced safety.

1:35 pm
here's your cnbc news update
1:36 pm
for this hour. paul ryan is calling on representatives to pass a tax cut bill by thanksgiving he called a news conference to publicly push them to work on it the interior department is announcing plans for what's expected to be the largist oil and gas lease sale ever held in the united states. it involves 77 million acres in the gulf of mexico that would be open for drilling. russia vetoed a resolution to suspend u.s. inspectors the united states was accused of calling the vote to show up and dishonor russia. the dodgers and houston astros said to face off in the hottest world series game ever we don't mean that's hot oh, my gosh, it's so hot game one begins at 5:09 p.m.
1:37 pm
pacific time, temperatures between 95 and 97 degrees, that beats what happened in arizona at 94 degrees, that was the record hot until then. >> must be those santa ana winds. >> joining us is representative josh gottheimer. congressman, welcome, good to have you with us >> i red in something you wrote, there's a lot to like about the ideas that have been floated so far about tax reform >> i think we have to get our tax rates down overall you can't have it higher than the major countries around the world, i'm for that, and obviously i want to get rates down across the board, my
1:38 pm
concern is, of course, provisions like the state and local taxes eliminating that, which will be a huge problem for states like mine, i'm from new jersey, that would end up being a tax hike, that's what i'm worried about. >> i'm a new jersey resident as are several of the people that work here. >> do you think the state and local tax, the elimination of the ability to deduct is going to be in the final bill? does it apply only to income taxes. do you understand it applies as well to property taxes they're trying to eliminate it for income and property. there's a lot of negotiating going on, which is why i'm eager to see the details and get into it to see the impact on new jersey and what it would mean for our tax rate bottom line, we're working very hard to make sure that new jersey and other states like ours doesn't actually carry the full burden of tax reform on our backs
1:39 pm
>> you get why someone who lives in a low tax state thinks they sub sid dies your constituents, right? it ends up being their tax bill, while your people who live in your state are paying for the state government >> right, which is why i quickly jumped to the facts which are -- in new jersey where i live, we get back 33 cents on the dollar we send to washington. states like west virginia get back $4.23 on the dollar we're paying the bill for others, tauz actually -- it's jersey well fare payments going to other states. to actually add to that now is another 6%, or $3,000 per family is offensive and will be uncompetitive for jersey the reason this comes up they have to figure out how to pay for these things, right?
1:40 pm
what would you do? >> this is why i want to see the pay fors the lobbyists are going to go after every single provision, we have to see the details. >> what pay for would you vote for? >> there are a ton of shelters you could eliminate as you know, when you lower the corporate tax ra rates that are out there we're ready, i just don't think it comes down on the backs of states like ours and eliminating the state tax due degeneration is air killer for a state like ours. >> let's talk a little bit about business taxes and what could be a part of this legislation and that is limiting the taxation, reducing taxation of pass through income for small businesses where do you stand on that >> i think this quickly gets into an issue where you have to make sure what you do doesn't
1:41 pm
just favor bigger companies, but gives relief to pass throughs which are incredibly important to the life lining of our country. this is where -- we've been talking around and around for months now, at a high level, we need to get into the specifics and that's where it requires -- i'm a fiscally more conservative, i want to sit at the table and get into the details, we've been asking for this for months. and, you know, we have a bunch of democrats like me who would be willing to support the right tax reform, we have to be in the conversation, and see the details, this is where it's important to see how it's going to have an impact. >> i guess we'll see the details on november 1, that's what they're saying, or we're reporting that will be the day the gop will release the details of the tax bills. >> i'm ready and eager >> i hear you have to go vote. >> eager to do that too. president trump meeting gop senators right now to talk taess
1:42 pm
there's very little talk about cutting spending that could create a problem. >> let's look at the overall budget picture before we get to tax reform, the cbo says the deficit this year is going to be about $487 billion by 2027 it's going to be 1.4 trillion, cumulatively, 9.4 trillion in deficits over the next 10 years, one of the biggest reasons is, look at the roles of social security, 45 million people on them now, by 2027 that will be 60 million, an increase of a third by 2023. 77 million people will be on the roles, that means the federal government needs more money to pay for that, take a look at the senate budget resolution, it allows for $1.5 trillion in higher deficits. that won't actually add to the
1:43 pm
deficit, because they're going to generate so much growth it will offset that money but that is highly spective. and the increase in retirement benefits for baby boomers, that is a demographic certainty and that's what people have to weigh, it's the concern of bob corker who's had this titanic fight with president trump today, he says he won't vote for a tax bill that will add a dollar to the deficit. we will see whether that concern ends up getting bigger especially as you indicated in that interview as all the pay fors, get jettison from this bill those are all being trimmed down, the cost is getting higher >> john, thank you very much >> let's get a check on the markets as this really incredible rally continues, the dow is up by more than 200 points right now what's even more amazing about
1:44 pm
this, ibm, johnson and johnson are down 3m, caterpillar and boeing are really fueling the dow right now in a big way, if ibm wasn't down, the dow would probably be up about 300 points. financials as a group, the best performing sector, bank of america is at its highest level since 2008, put this in your market pipe and smoke it there are 11 dow stocks which are up more than 25% just this year >> that's an incredible move >> a good return >> not bad at all. >> very negative about that. >> how much more pain is ahead for ge investor shares hitting another new low or to dig into ge's biggest problems right now, shares of polaris soaring right now, we're going to ask if people are really buying more
1:45 pm
atv's and motorcycles, just iccause the stock market is hot. stk around and find out the answer a basketball costs $14. what's team spirit worth? (cheers) what's it worth to talk to your mom? what's the value of a walk in the woods? the value of capital is to create, not just wealth, but things that matter. morgan stanley
1:46 pm
1:47 pm
welcome back to power lunch. a bullish outlook, 10 year high as quarterly profits edged past expectations ryan marshall says demand remains robust in areas like houston and floors, which were hit particularly hard, guys. >> thank you very much >> record sales, improved profits, data pushing shares of polaris hired today. here for a power lunch exclusive is the ceo -- the market is rewarding you as it has been all year here's our question, you are a consumer company, albeit mostly discretionary. we want your stuff, but we don't need your stuff.
1:48 pm
how much have you been able to figure out that these record stock market highs are causing people to go out and buy atv's >> you know, obviously, we're helped by the market, you think about our customers, their 401(k) balances go up, they're likely to have more confidence and buy a new side by side or motorcycle i think the regulatory reform we're seeing is starting to get confidence in our industries our customers are feeling more confident. traffic was up in the third quarter. >> we haven't talked about the farm economy we've been talking about the stock market mostly. you are dependent on the farm economy to a point how is that part of the economy doing? >> you look at ag and oil, which we lump together sometimes it's not those industries, per say, it's the consumers that are sported by those industries, together they make up about 23% of our overall sales
1:49 pm
the ag market was up quite significantly in the third quarter for us, and oil was also up, the first time in 18 months, we've had both of those markets respond well for us, so that certainly helped us deliver on our 13% retail sales growth in north america in the third quarter. >> the numbers were impressive the sales up dramatically. one of the first things you said this morning was, this was not a good quarter, just a better one, what does that mean? why not? >> well, you know, we have high expectations, we know internally, how hard the team is working and how many obstacles they're overcoming to make sure we deliver our commitments on the street really what i'm trying to do is make sure that everyone understands the earnings power of this company is significant in the future, and we have a lot of work to do to be as good as we believe we can be >> how important would tax reform be for your bottom line
1:50 pm
>> it would be significant for us we pay 35% we had some benefit in the third quarter, that gave us about 12 skrengts of earnings benefit. we are lobbying hard for tax reform, we believe we believe it will benefit our customers as well. >> that's the thing, scott, knock on tax reform, farmers screw the entire industry. they got a break 15 or 20 years ago instead of doing things like plants, they paid dividends. how do we know tax reforms will go into employees' pockets and opening factories. you would biuild more so you can hire more and pay more >> you can bet here a little bit. when we saw the opportunity to sell more vehicles, we built a plant in huntsville, alabama and hired almost a thousand people there. that's what gets the economy
1:51 pm

♪ we are simply running out of records for the stock market market run it is another day that ends in y. therefore, it is another market high i didn't mean to rhyme caterpillar and pboeing is all hire gm and, cannot be all good news. whirlpool is sinking and sinking a 100 years relationship with sears. bob pisani is standing by. >> hello michelle. i want to point of this dow and the s&p 500, 16 and 70 base points difference. it does not sound a lot but it is when you are talking about the big indexes out there. we have two spots that are moving things around
2:02 pm
dramatically first 3 m, 3 m at a good number. i am sorry, you don't go up 7% on a 1% raise guidance here. this looks like a short recovery and i know a lot of hedge funds are betting on -- another one with good volume and good pricing is caterpillar and raising your guidance of 25% that's a huge move up here again, four times normal volume. this looks like some people is covering shorts as we i saw this happening with a number of industrial happening last week. granger, another big company had a move up. huge volume on the day f its ea earnings and same with flemings. >> the other group i want to point out is the banks' ten
2:03 pm
years yielding the highest level since april right now. >> we are hitting new highs once again at all the major banks obvio usually a week or two, they're still recovering and going down to earnings. this is not happening this earning season these banks will go up immediately as we started reporting with companies like jp morgan the dow is near the highs of the day, 193 points. >> got it bob. >> what do you do with this record rally stay invested or sell out? >> warren financial is joining us now as well as corner stone financial partners good to have you here, gentle n gentlemen. >> thanks for having me. >> this is been going on for a long time and i am getting nervous this rally has been going on too long, should they stay or out? >> i think they should stay in this is a grass root rally this is based on earnings.
2:04 pm
if you watch what's happening in the morning when companies are reporting their easternings and what caterpillar and gm is doing. there is a lot of grass roots earning that's building up and sending the index is higher. maybe it is not for everyone but i think it is good to stay in. >> chris, what do you think at this point >> no, i agree, the markets have been doing well. it is all earnings based and it is the economic story that's happening around the world it is synchronized across the board. watch out for utilities as it is relatively expensive and they adopt have as good growth rates. something like the financial where prices a buck or one and a half of where you live >> randall, with all the senators meeting today with the
2:05 pm
president, on tax reform, what if we get that also? does that add to the rally or are we going to sell to the news >> no, i think it adds to the rallies. i don't think investors are expecting much out of washington, d.c. this is coming from the bottom chris is right to reference the rest of the world. for the first time in quite a few years, we are seeing growth in the rest of the world we are shifting some money away from the u.s. market into the international markets and emerging markets and trying to take advantage of that group not to take anything away from the united states though, we are doing well also. >> chris, i heard randy say if tax reform happens, it will add to the rally let me ask you if tax reform does not happen, if the tax massive cuts don't pass, what does it do to the rally if anything >> tax reform is a little bit
2:06 pm
priced and mostly not. >> i agree a lot with that statement and a lot of the rallies and earning basis are not counting tax cuts, if you do get tax cuts, small caps and mid caps are likely to rally higher. in this case, if you don't get tax reform at all, i do think the market is getting back a little bit and calling it a couple percent or a little bit more on the large cap base, we are looking at s&p 500 and a little bit of tax reform is baked in. >> just to explain, why do small caps benefit more than large caps on taxes. >> small caps traditionally pay and playing the traditional marginal tax rate. it is able to lower tax rates for corporations most small caps will get the drought from 35 % to 25% it is multi national and their tax rates are closer to 26%. >> got it guys, randy and chris.
2:07 pm
>> thank you >> all right, well, you know this, ge, general electric has been a difficult run for investors. performance have been down for more than a decade now >> in some debate forming about whether or not ge should be kicked out of index, it is the oldest component in it >> michael is joining us now to talk more about this it would seem impossible this is the oldest component in the dow. it is still a massive corporation. they follow on a difficult time. is there any real reason that ge should get the boot. >> i think it is mature to talk about that for a lot of reasons that you allude to yes, performance was your main stance for whether stocks staying in the dow almost $200 billion market value
2:08 pm
right now still, tremendous economic foot, we are talking about exposure of the global infrastructure and $125 billion in revenue, it is hard to replace ge with anything of significance scale, especially in the industrial places you will be going down, which by the way splitting in two and used to be a dow to find a comparable exposure. now, i do think there is something to be said for the idea that eventually if ge can use the high businesses and continue to shrink and lose its relevan relevance. to me, it is all about what will replace it and what's better and what's got out a little more of economic profile and nothing obvious. >> i was joking semi yesterday when we said we should replace gm with tesla and anything else with bit coin. there is dow 100,000 right there over night >> making the momentum -- look,
2:09 pm
what's interesting about this is what are the big stocks that maybe the dow committee's itching to get in there? is it amazon >> you are talking about like comcast is really big but its got the family control you have a give and take of what maybe next to give in. >> mike, stick around as we continue our conversation of the next guest who threw the towel on ge and seeing a dividend cut. christopher glenn is senior industrial analyst, what do you think here >> we are talking about what ge can continue or will continue as a member of the dow, thumbs up or down on that? >> well, i would evaluate the stock on that, i am not an expert of the components of the dow of what it should be in. like you guys said $100 billion market cap is a little premature on that decision discuss
2:10 pm
>> there they are, they're right there in boston around the corner from you where you are christopher. lets talk about the dividends, which is something you do analyze and many years one of the reasons people by ge, do you think it is safe? >> i think they'll cut it, the free cash flow is below the $8 billion current dividend pay out for the next couple of years at least it is a 4.4% yield that's an outliers they're having fun with a little incremental debt sale. >> some ge's shareholders maybe wishing they push ge out of the dow. >> what happens historically when a stock leeads the dow jones?
2:11 pm
>> it is a little intuitive. the reason for that, the people that makes the committee and who decides on what's in the dow are susceptible to a market sentiment. when it is at an ultimate low and at a time when it is sold out, lets look at one example in 2013, bank of america, and hewitt pakard and visas, as a group, the ones that's kicked out have done better >> christopher, what are you waiting to hear from mr. flannery, what do you want to hear that might turn your opinion on the stock a little bit more to the favorable side >> i would say two or three things one is clarification on the power segment between this year and next year, you will see a 30% profits decline. that's based on the pressure and
2:12 pm
no capacity in the industry and lower utilization in the world they did not see this rapid downtu downturn either. that's a bit concerning. loose comments on that is helpful. they indicated 20 billion of revenue would be up for the best we have some idea of what's likely in that respect the reallocation of that proceeds whether that's the pension plan or reduce debt. some of the low margin businesses, may not be a dime of earnings or they can reclaim that if it is allocated elegantly. chris, thank you so much christopher glynn, thanks. >> right now pushing a $4 trillion tax reform plan.
2:13 pm
the house has set a date for a new bill to be unveiled. >> nobody circles their calendar anymore, you got a reminder on our iphone >> that's right, i got an app or something. after this budget gets passed presumably on capitol hill you see the live shot there, you see he's in his policy lunch there with mitch mcconnell walking in, it was interrupted by protesters throwing russian flag at the president there and shouting trump is treason. tr trump is treason so lunchdid not get off to a good start. the president is there to pitch his tax reform proposal. he gave us a sense of what his argument would be. here is what the president said earlier today. we get this passed, which i
2:14 pm
believe we will. i would say $4 trillion back in the country. money that wants to come back in the united states cannot come back but under our plan, that money will flow back in. it will be quick and it will be very easy and it is a lot of money. >> so the president is making that pitch now behind closed doors. i can tell you the press pulled or gathered outside the room where the president is meeting with senate republicans saying there is some applause audible in the hallway for the president. we'll see when he comes out and he may talk to cameras there and give us a redialing through exactly how this went today and where they think things are going down the line. of course, all of this taking place in the mix of the president feuding of certain senators on capitol hill that adds to a political tenderness at the moment so a lot of tensions on this lunch

we keep on reading there is a big shortage of truck drivers. what do you have to pay truck drivers to get them to come on bor board. >> there is a surge of truck drivers. the pay for truck drivers vary dependsing on the type of routes it can be up to six figures depending on the types of routes those drivers are driving. >> all the analysts are talking about the eld, it is going into effect next year and they say it is going to change your company and the industry, what is that going to do to ryder's system. >> it forces all trucking companies to adhere to the law in terms of safety and the number of powers the driver can drive. it will level the plainfield for
2:23 pm
companies of which certainly adhering to the law. it is a good thing for the industry it will make it challenging for any small truck companies not adhering to the law. it will tighten up the market a little bit >> thanks so much for joining us, much appreciate it >> thank you for having me >> new reports out saying americans are reembracing a new type of loans. we'll tell you what it means for the real estate market and how it is boosting banks >> it could mean disaster for p publishers unless they pay up for facebook straight ahead on "power lunch." secure from hacks and threats others can't see. this is a skyscraper whose elevators use iot data and ai to help thousands get to work safely and efficiently. this is not the cloud you know. this is the ibm cloud.
